I'm posting this thread for people like me who have too many mods to list in a small space.

Thread rules:
Post pics of your mods (if you can) and a description of what it is

No asking for DIY's or for any other help, if you have a question go to PM's

Keep all of your Mod's to one post (edit later for update's) you can post that you updated your earlier post

I will get the Ball rolling in my next post

Well, I plan to add mine soon... I just have been in a whirlwind of non-scooter-related busyness. Confused

Also I've got a couple more small "mods" that I'd like to do before I take the time to get all photojournalistic on you guys.

Well I don't think I'll ever be "done", but it's a real mess right now. Just been really busy and scooting around like a madman and generally abusing
the Bud. I at least need to clean it up or something. I could make a list of stuff I've done with no pictures, but that would be worthless. Rolling Eyes

Besides painting the footrests black, all I've done is painted a few little hardware pieces (screws and bolts) a snazzy anodized purple color. I like it kind of a lot actually, and I'll probably do a few more. Been thinking about doing it to the front chrome badge thing, but I don't know how much I'll like that...it might be overkill?

Windshields and racks count as mods too! I'm surprised how striking the purple bolts are, when you were describing
them I was like what the heck is he talking about, but I really like it. I think it especially looks good with the seafoam. Very Happy

And I got one more mod done today, painted my rusty mirrors! Those Zuma mirrors are going back up in the attic.
Now I'm just waiting on my tires and I gotta find a gasket for the Prima and I'll be set!

Only thing I've done so far is added the rear rack and a cargo box.

I like the idea of painting the foot rests and rear light housing black. Might have to look into that Smile

ScooterTrash: I'm intrigued by the center-stand pin, but haven't figured out the (obvious?) benefit of it. Can you elaborate?

Here's my little touch on my BlackJack...was begging to be done.

Very sharp, friend. I really like your LED underlights. Have to admit that you've got me thinking maybe I should've gone with red instead of cold white like I did. Very cool looking scooter you have there.

Chrome racks and rails, front fender & headpiece
led underlights and deadlights wired for running lights
next thing is to work on some forward lights and mirrors to tip the hat to the mod 'quadrophenia' style
